4 Emacs tools

Everyone writing code knows how important a good editor is. Most systems already come with Emacs, and excellent programmer's editor. mdk adds support to Emacs for both writing and debugging MIX programs. A major mode for MIXAL source files eases edition of your code, while integration with Emacs' debugging interface (GUD) lets you use mixvm without leaving your favourite text editor.

This chapter shows how to use the Elisp modules included in mdk, assuming that you have followed the installation instructions in See Emacs support.
